A cup of coffee.
Make it... chips.
And carrots. And hummus. And muffins.
And more cookies. And more chips.
A place in the sun and a place in the shade.
A table for six.
Six characters in search of a conversation.
Six hearts in search of a connection.
Six people with their past, their identities, their fears, their mistakes.
Six cups of tea. Six mouths to feed. Six lips to speak.
Twelve eyes to see. Twelve ears to hear.
All it takes is some coffee, or tea.
Some cookies, maybe chips.
And something is born... a word. A tear. A question?
A conversation full of nuance and feeling and empathy.
A conversation of no sides, but one - the HUMAN side.
A conversation about home. And land. And tragedy.
We are all just searching for a conversation.
We are all just yearning for connection.
Start with a cup of coffee. Or tea.
In April 2020, while experiencing her first ever global pandemic, Tamar Pelzig pledged to write something every day, even if it's only a word, so she welcomed to the world a daily blog to keep her creative writing wheels rolling.
